  1. Back in 2014, I remember reading about a proposal by the city (OR, a major developer in the area saying the city had plans) to expand Sawyer St between Crocket and Washington into 4 lanes. Unfortunately, I cannot find that anymore but it does appear I have come across some sort of Complete Street proposal for Sawyer. It appears to have been created around 2015 though, so I am wondering if anyone has any new information on this road since the city has clearly been studying this road segment for a while: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3ZyxZ9zC-bpSUtBT3lTZUNiVmc/view

    Yea... it's quite easy to find the reference to the second light since it's on a whole host of schematics: ...The hard part is find the Sawyer expansion. I am actually going to create a new thread in the transportation subforum because I think I may have found an article about a Complete Street proposal for Sawyer.

    I'll have to see if I can find it. It was a proposal by the city to connect Summer, expand Sawyer to 4 lanes from Crockett to Washington, and have a light at Studemont & Summer St.

    Is there any indication from the city that they still plan to expand Sawyer? Haven't seen any reference to that since 2014.
  5. I think that's a better description. Nothing changed on the maps but there was a lot of discussion about potential changes that they are considering/reviewing based on feedback, particularly at the "Traffic table". Big one being the N Main intersection and the lack of ramps on the north side of the bridge. Sounded like Cottage may be disappearing. The thing that actually made me upset was the lack of knowledge of some of their own maps. They were freaking out residents at the Traffic table when the leader of that table said the Quitman and Crockett bridges were disappearing... which is not the case... only the HOV connection at Quitman is going away. Really made me upset no one corrected him either and we weren't allowed to say anything until called on and it was already past my turn. One thing to note, there were also quite a few people opposed to the proposed bridge by COH between Burnett St. and Edwards St. Lot of people on the west side of I-45 were concerned about an inundation of vehicular traffic into their neighborhood. So it will be interesting if that bridge is removed from COH's plan now. Sucks, cause I thought it was great to actually see a new potential connection coming across I-45.
  6. Went to the meeting tonight,,,anyone know where I can find all the new documents from the planning and development department? Didn't see it on the north Houston project page but I could be overlooking it. It included a huge amount of potential changes based on feedback.
  7. Interesting... Wonder how they got that number then....maybe including the nearby parking garage?
  8. Now I know it's Wikipedia but is this article wrong? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JPMorgan_Chase_Tower_(Houston)
  9. That being said, I'm going to be a little sad the day Arne's inevitability closes its doors.
  10. For some perspective, Chase Tower downtown is 2.2 million sqft at 75 floors.

  12. What do you mean by Buffalo Heights? Also, why don't you post the rendering to Reddit then? I feel the pain though... all my initial White Oak Music Hall info was taken here from HAIF and it exploded on Reddit... which ended up causing issues for me but that's a longer story.
  14. The real test begins when classes start at UofH on August 19th.
  15. It's clearly been painted. They're allowed to add a new coat if it sticks to the historical guidelines. It's not like you can't repaint if you own a historic structure... that would be ridiculous and the structure would likely erode quicker. That being said, if you do plan on adding a new coat of paint, you can as long as you get permission from the Historic Preservation committee first. They have specific paint guidelines and sources you can use.
  16. And as always, this bus system will get not be on time because you always have idiots blocking the Westheimer intersection. I do not understand how this city cannot have grade separated transportation.... (yes, yes! the cost oh my!) but does everything have to somehow be tied to car congestion?
  17. Posting gifs of yawning and rolling eyes is rude behavior when it's directed at someone's opinion.
  18. That sounds terrible. I really see traffic getting worse after this rebuild because build up from other highways will be easier to back up other roads now...
  19. I've reread his post 3 times now. It's just a difference of opinion and he's asking people to not call him a name if his opinion is different from anyone else's, which is fine. Edit: How is that request putting you down? Doesn't make sense. There's nothing wrong with that at all and I sometimes do that on Reddit and other forums as well when I know my opinion will be different from the majority of people.
  20. How's the traffic going to I-69? My wife is going to UofH and just wait until that traffic starts in a couple of weeks. Curious if that got better or worse.
  21. Let's have a discussion without mudslinging please. Thank you. Also, let's hold off on thread moving requests for sections that don't exist yet. I've been getting quite a few of those the past couple of weeks but editor is still building these new sections. Thanks.
